Gracious Gratitude

Days 941 — 943

Through the Looking Glass

Global pandemic.

Wow. Never thought I would write those words. The last handful of days have been a whirlwind. The rapid way in which things changed just from last Friday to today is mind boggling. It feels as though I have fallen through the looking glass…down a rabbit hole.

Though my gratitude lists have happened, they haven’t happened here as I’ve struggle to focus on the critical matters in front of me — like sustaining a business, its staff, and many clients.

This week I’ve spent all day, every day, channeling all the strength I can muster, to be there and present for those who need me.

Tonight I take care of me.

Hot meal. Curl up on sofa with my dogs. And get ready to tackle tomorrow.

Today’s gracious gratitude. I am grateful for:

  • My health
  • My family’s health
  • My dogs
  • My clients
  • My friends
  • Sweet and sour meatballs
  • Pretzels
  • Sleep
